This was my first Christie novel and I can finally say I understand now why she is still so popular to this day. I loved every second of this book. The writing was succinct and it kept me guessing till the very end. I wanted to scream out "who did it!" as the story unfolded.

In this Christie classic, twelve strangers are lured to an isolated island mansion off the coast of Devon where a killer picks off the guests one by one. A quick and suspenseful read that is also a PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick.

One of the very few books i finished within 3 days, and that ending i did not see coming.

To the best of my knowledge, this is the best mystery book I've read so far. The grip in the story gets tighten in every chapter and our mind races to out-think the author to put an end to the mystery. But, the author's way of unraveling everything slowly and steadily gives you a chill.

Pure genius. Without a spare word, Christie draws us into the drama unfolding on the island and we get to know each of the characters as they are picked off one by one. Could one of them be behind the murders? Why did I wait so long to read this mystery of mysteries?!

I read this book for the "A Book By Agatha Christie" part of my 2018 reading challenge. I enjoyed it and was definitely puzzled by the mystery, but it was lighter and shorter than I expected. I would have liked if it were a bit deeper and less fluffy.

Good, quick mystery read. A great "Who did it" mystery tale.

And Then There Were None is an amazing book which kept me reading and wondering about the mystery until the very end. The murderer turned out to be someone I haven't even suspected because they planned out the whole thing so precisely and covered them self well. This book is filled with clever, exciting, and mysterious things and the whole book and story is planned out so well by the author. I will never regret reading this book because I didn't even expect it to be so interesting when I started reading it. I think this book will be best suited for children and adults 12 and up.

In this book Agatha Christie combines both mystery and murder into one book. This book had such surprising turns on events, that my mouth stayed open the whole time. I usually don't like reading murder novels, but this one was so interesting, that no force was able to separate me from this book. If you are in grades 7-9 and you like poems, mysteries, and unexplained deaths, then this book is for you. Seriously, check this book out of the library and READ IT!!!!

Though this title is considered Agatha Christie's best, contemporary readers may find it a bit hum-drum. It's a good plot -- there just aren't any adrenaline moments with bombs going off, car chases, etc.

"There was something magical about an island—the mere word suggested fantasy. You lost touch with the world—an island was a world of its own. A world, perhaps, from which you might never return."

10 little soldier boys went out to dine,
One choked his little self, and then there were nine.

Nine little sailor boys sat up very late,
One overslept himself and then there were eight.

Eight little sailor boys travelling in Devon,
One said he'd stayed there, and then there were seven.

Seven little sailor boys chopping up sticks,
One chopped himself in halves, and then there were six.

Six little sailor boys playing with a hive,
A little bee stung one, and then there were five.

Five little sailor boys going in for law,
One got a chancery, and then there were four.

Four little sailor boys going out to sea,
A red herring swallowed one, and then there were three.

Three little sailor boys going to the zoo,
A big bear hugged one, and then there were two.

Two little sailor boys sitting in the sun,
One got frizzled up, and then there was one.

One little sailor boy left all alone,
He went and hung himself,

And then there were none.
